In preparing a display on daffodils for the Emerald City in Oz (Frank Baum’s, not the real one down under) I made up a list of 2 W-GWWs to illustrate variety among blooms with the same code. I picked only pictures from Daffseek of bulbs I have grown or blooms I have seen and admired in shows. I’ll bet some of you have strong opinions and might even wax eloquent about what I left out. I’d be glad to hear about it.

There was only one familiar trumpet with the parallel code, Silent Valley, and there were about a dozen short cups. That could generate another discussion.

P.S. Some prominent hybridizers who frequently hold forth here have no bulbs represented on my list. I hope others will educate me appropriately.
